Dr Stefan Danilishin is now an Associate Professor of Physics at Maastricht University, with a focus on the ET Pathfinder project.

During his time at the LUH, he was the leader of the theory group “Quantum Optomechanics” at the IGP/ITP of the Leibniz Universität Hannover. Before moving to Hannover in 2017, he worked at the University of Glasgow (UK), University of Western Australia (Australia) and the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia). He did his PhD (2005) on advanced quantum measurement techniques for gravitational-wave interferometry under the supervision of Prof. Farid Khalili in the research group led by Prof. Vladimir Braginsky in the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, and held postdoctoral and faculty positions there before moving to Australia in 2012.
